Dumb-as-a-door-nail-Jax, and couldn't-buy-a-clue-Brittany navigate through life's most simplistic of obstacles. It's difficult to watch two grown adults struggle like two captive-born baboons released into the wild for the first time. If Dotard isn't enough of an embarrassment to the American people, Jax and Brittany will make you want to buy the first plane ticket out

This title has:

Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

It's just a jax bashing , so boring ! Britney and her family constantly pushing the marriage thing , it's so desperate . He's totally out of his element and it's just not fun to watch.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

This predictable reality spin-off offers a traditional fish-out-of-water story combined with the standard soapy elements Vanderpumps are known for. City boy Jax looks for ways to cope with Brittany's family and their cultural values, implying that the couple's relationship may be in jeopardy. There are some very contrived situations, but the show is also full of real-seeming heated exchanges as the couple tries to reconcile differences that become apparent during the visit home.

Vanderpump Rules: Jax & Brittany Take Kentucky does have some messages about family and tradition, but they're often used for comic effect. In addition to the arguing between the pair, Jax's unwillingness to respect the house rules and his lack of patience with their overall intrusiveness also creates some strife. Fans of the couple, or of the original show, may enjoy it. But if you're not a fan, you probably won't find a whole lot here to make it worth the watch.
